I never thought I'd buy... electric pencil sharpener. But here I am, spending AUD$115 on one.

I own a lot of Derwent pencils, and for years I have happily sharpened them with a normal hand sharpener.

Looking at my beautiful new pencils, I knew I had a problem: I have rotator cuff and wrist tendonitis in both arms - so there was no way on God's green earth that I would be hand-sharpening ~200 coloured pencils!

So, I am now the proud new owner of an X-Acto SchoolPro Electric Sharpener:
